2. Describe how nitrogen dioxide is produced when fossil fuels are burnt.

  • Fossil fuels burn and create excess nitrogen so it's put in a combiner and turned into nitrogen dioxide for experiments.
  • Fuels in a car engine burn and create nitrogen monoxide, then once the nitrogen monoxide reacts with more nitrogen in the atmosphere is turns into nitrogen dioxide.
  • Fuels in a car engine burn and create nitrogen monoxide, then once the carbon monoxide is in the air it will react with oxygen to give nitrogen dioxide.
  • Fossil fuels are burnt and creates nitrogen. The nitrogen reacts with oxygen in the air and creates nitrogen dioxide.

3. Describe briefly how the pollutant sulfur dioxide is produced.

  • Sulfur dioxide can be given off from the reactants of tobacco in cigarettes.
  • When fuels containing sulfur burn the sulfur burns too and the atoms combine with nitrates in the air which produce sulfur dioxide.
  • When fuels containing sulfur burn the sulfur burns too and the atoms combine with the oxygen in the air to produce sulfur dioxide.
  • When fuels burn they automatically give off sulfur dioxide.

4. Give the formulas of nitrogen monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.

  • Nitrogen monoxide= PO, nitrogen dioxide= NO
  • Nitrogen monoxide= NO, nitrogen dioxide= NO^2.
  • Nitrogen monoxide= NOO, nitrogen dioxide = NONONON
  • Nitrogen monoxide= NO^2, nitrogen dioxide= NO

5. Name the main element that makes up coal.

  • Carbon dioxide.
  • Carbon.
  • Sulfur.
  • Nitrogen.
